Nannie's Brownies

Debbie Sue


This is my grandma's recipe for brownies. We called my grandma "Nannie". That's what she wanted to be called by all the grand kids.

These brownies are cake like, and are so very good with a big glass of milk! I hope you like them! We all sure do!

This one's for you Nannie!

Nannie was born in 1903, and passed in January of 1988
